Best of Sevens head to nationals


27/11/2018



By NSW Rugby Media

The best of NSW will represent the State at the National Sevens championships in Brisbane next week following confirmation of the squads.

NSW will have six teams competing, including two teams in each of the three categories: Youth Girls Under 17s, Youth Boys Under 17s and Open Men.

Head Coach of the Open Men’s teams, Marshall Milroy said picking the final 12 for each of the teams was challenging.

“We have tremendous talent in our State and it would be fair to say that the players didn’t make it easy for us to settle on the final squads,” Milroy said.

“Following two months of intensive training, trials, and tournaments the final squads feature players from the last two years’ nationals, including several players who have advanced from the NSW Youth programme and three players who are in the Australian Men’s Sevens wider squad,” he added.

Head Coach of the Youth Girls teams Kieran Smith said: “Queensland are clearly the team to beat having won the past two tournaments and they have home ground advantage. We are ready for the challenge though. We have trust in our preparation, trust in our systems, and trust in our players. We’re confident we’ll put in a good performance."

Head Coach of the Youth Boys teams, Chris Delooze, said: “As in previous years, both of the Youth Boys teams will be extremely competitive. NSW Blue have won the last three national titles and last year both NSW teams qualified top in their respective pools. The boys have been training extremely well over the last six weeks and both teams are ready for another big tournament. There will be a number of returning players in the Blue team and that extra experience will be important in the knock out stages of the competition.”

The National Championships will be held from 7-9 December at Ballymore.
